Bob Pastel headed up the workshop on February 13th. His theme was a continuum of his Tuesday monthly meeting demonstration, candlestick turning. Once again, the workshop was well received by the membership.
When the workshop theme is of interest to the membership and the instructor is knowledgeable in the subject matter, and he or she is comfortable in presenting a demonstration to a large group of people, a strong workshop will be the result.
While candlestick turning is an axiom of spindle turning, Bob reviewed the basics of properly mounting a spindle blank on lathe, lathe safety, sharpening of tools, and the proper use of tools. Bob turned two different styles of candle sticks and challenged the members to turn them. Bob moved between wood turners, providing members with one on one instruction when the need arose.
Our three shop lathes along with three members bringing their own, provided each member the opportunity to work on a lathe and experience the woodturning requirements to turn and finish a candle stick.
